Is the SW pier standard with the Avalon ??? Or is that your own creation :)
You can have 3 types of tripod Tom, I got the SW one as I know they are good and it was recommended by Ian.

I've just seen the new Avalon tripods, damn they are expensive, I could buy almost a complete new rig for one of those.

I am having problems connecting it all together. I cannot get the FW and CCD to fit each other any where close to central, They fit but not along the centre line if you see what I mean, They look offset, I'm going to fiddle with the rotating sleeve connectors, But I hate having to screw them all together and then take them off again.
The SBIG comes with a push fit Baader nose piece, I have a feeling that comes apart so I can utilise that, if the drawings on the box are accurate
The other problem is getting the M48 connections and spacing right from FF to FW optimal chip distance which is 54.7 mm + or - 1.5mm.

Will post pics when I get it sorted. Plus every night since I unpacked it all, its been cloudy. guess the curse works even here :(
